about the problem with the communist nation of russia which has illegally seized crimea and is now making incursions into the eastern area of ukraine? i just returned from a trip, mr. speaker, on sunday, visiting some former soviet block nations, to talk about their response to the aggressive, illegal actions of russia and what's happening, to reset the table in the former soviet block nations. these are nations that are very worried about what they're seeing. they're worried because they understand that you can trust a communist to be a communist and their actions today are a mere image of what their action were formerly. russia recognizes if no one pushes back, they will continue to salivate over more lands and more influence and seek to dominate more people. russia's responsible for enslaving millions of people. in fact, they even murdered tens of millions of their own people under stalin. this is the regime that needs to be washed. and unfortunately under our previous secretary of state, hillary clinton, she gave, in my opinion unwisely, the reset button to the former soviet --
